Def Leppard singer Joe Elliott played a rare solo cover of a Mick Ronson song on his weekly radio show last night.

Joe revealed that he covered the song 'This Is For You' alongside the late Dick Decent for a Mick Ronson documentary. The song was aired as part of a three song tribute (see next news story for more).

Joe's version of the song dates from 2010 when news of a Mick Ronson documentary, called 'And Ronson Played Guitar', was mentioned online. Joe also contributed an interview for the film which seems to still be unreleased.

The official site for Mick Ronson references the documentary in 2010 (including Joe's contribution) and at least 10 mins of footage was used on a Free DVD in Classic Rock Magazine in May 2010.

The song was recorded by Mick Ronson in 1975.

"And before that a song that I recorded with Dick for a Mick Ronson documentary. The old Annette Peacock song that Ronson did on his Play Don't Worry album, a tune called This Is For You."
